With that image, how could it not be amazing?
Me: (beaming and smiling and all excited fingers*) So Imaginarium was great!
?: No it was not!
Me: Hey what are you doing here, Darcarus?--This is my post!
Darcarus: Well you're lying. It was awful. I had to be restrained from gouging my eyes out in boredom.
Me: ...OK now you just went from amusing to rude. I am certain that other vendors there had a good time and recovered from their expenses.
Darcarus: Are you kidding? Did you see how empty that room was? If Death himself had walked into that room and said that he was going to take the first person who so much as looked alive, that room could not have gotten any more dead.
?: The staff was great but... Yeah, you know I totally agree with that.
Me: Evrae, what are you doing here?!
Evrae: (offense*) Well I saw Darcarus got to be on your blog, so I was like, why not me too?
Me: ...Get off my blog, Evrae.
?: What? No one told me we were doing a blog post today!
Me: WE are not, Ephraim.
Ephraim: By Sel'ari, if Evrae and Darcarus are going to be on your blog, at least Sairel should be here, too.
Me: No, no one is on my blo-
Sairel: (narrows his eyes*) ...What am I getting roped into doing...?
Evrae: Oh, Ishmael, too! Ishmael! Ishmael! JJ is letting us run her blog!
Ishmael: It's about time. No one reads this shit with her giddy little lies. Are we telling how bored we were at Imaginarium? Gods. That's as boring as being there. Why don't we all just sign a suicide pact now and skip the dribble?
Zauviir: A suicide pact?--I cannot be killed.
Ephraim: Where did you come from?--And who in Aersadore invited Zauviir?
Zauviir: Your mom.
Darcarus: His mom is dead.
Zauviir: Double burn.
Me: (gasps*) GUYS. FINE. Imaginarium was horribly boring. Attending from a vendor's point of view, if we wanted to throw a few hundred dollars down a toilet, it's definitely easier to do that five feet down the hall.
Ishmael: Oh look. She's being honest. What's the "BUT."
Ishmael: Told you.
Me: I did meet a few awesome people and all that time inbetween was all worth it because several wonderful friends showed up to check out the convention, and we went out to eat with them after the pains of Saturday. And yes, drink away our sorrows. If you need to attend panels to learn about the writing process: go for it. But if you were considering it from a vendor point of view?
Darcarus: Run. Run for the hills.
Me: ... In short: no, we will not be attending next year. But here are some pictures of us pretending to have fun:
Evrae: They were trying to name the dragon and I saw some of the names in the bowl. The one that sticks with me is: Black Dragon.
Ishmael: Creativity abounds.
Me: I'm smiling but we were in the back corner where all things went to die.
Darcarus: I'm telling you, everything was dead the moment it walked through that door.
Evrae: Let's do another blog post next week!
Me: ...Oh great.
